The Jackie Robinson and his bright wife I knw through the press and people who knew them could never have been Republicans after 1960. Pretty soon, Rogue will have made Rosa Parks a Republican. One can't help but notice that 95% of the names on his Republican list are pre-1950s, and most pre-1900. No one argues that Lincoln was a Republican. No one argues that the Dems of decades ago were not exactly colour-blling. That is how it was until the late 1950s, poor Rogue, fully 60 years ago. Were Wallace, Maddox, part and parcel of the National Dem party?<quoted text>
Wow! Im impressed Rogue. Is that about the same number who voted for Mitt Romney?
In 2008, King's son, Martin Luther King III, said it was "disingenuous to imply that my father was a Republican. He never endorsed any presidential candidate, and there is certainly no evidence that he ever even voted for a Republican. It is even more outrageous to suggest he would support the Republican Party of today, which has spent so much time and effort trying to suppress African American votes in Florida and many other states."
Rogue list Condoleezza Rice. What a surprise. One of the proud initiators of the Afghan and Iraqi "successes"
